What a piece of shit.
Pupi Avati's "The Childhood Friend" is an insanely atmospheric and super-tense early 90s thriller somewhere between Tony Scott's "The Fan", Joel Edgerton's "The Gift" and Michael Haneke's "Caché".
I don't know what happened, but for whatever reason no-one cared about it when it came out. And to this day, no-one seem to care for it. For years, I only had a massively cut bootleg (twenty minutes shorter!) of it. Now that my Italian got a bit better, I dared to…
"Loud, Annoying Noises: The Movie"
"Loud, Annoying Screams: The Movie"
"Loud, Annoying Jump Scares: The Movie"
"Twistident in a Twistland"
"High Tension Inside a Livid Martyr's house at the Frontier(s) Among The Living"
French horror is officially dead now. The on-set incident with Taylor Hickson hopefully kills off Laugier's career. And, seriously, people who get a real kick out of this fucking piece of shit have serious issues.
